    Hello!

    I bought a used 2006 R1200RT last month, and I've really been enjoying it. I had been waiting on BMW to release the F800GT, but was rather underwhelmed, to say the least. I was a little nervous about the seat height of the RT, but it is so well-balanced it is completely not a problem.

    I've been riding since the Nixon Administration, and commute every day, rain or shine on the bike. I just love it.

    Cheers!

    Welcome John!

    Its nice to see another Cap City person on here. There are several of us around; I live out in Placer County. I've been riding for over a year now with an 07 RT, and its great! Like you, I ride every day once the weather turns decent. Rain doesn't bother me, but ice does, and since I commute up into the hills, when its raining down here, it is often snowing or icy up there. Perhaps I'll see you around...

    Greetings and welcome from up in the wine country.

    I am a brick rider myself, but a R1200 is a sweet machine. My first bike was a boxer and I still miss it after twenty years. Nothing like a boxer engine.

    Thanks, David & A B!

    My first ride was up through Auburn to GV to Bridgeport and back down. I have always loved that country...

    Cheers!
